Dangberg Ranching Empire, in which they tell the story of Steve’s family, the Dangbergs. They spoke about how H.F. Dangberg immigrated to the U.S. and acquired over 33,000 acres of land and began his ranching empire, as well as the family turmoil that led to the fall of their company. They also toured the Dangberg Ranch.
